Media reviews

Review of the first edition:

"The author aimed to summarise much of the available knowledge in avian medicine and surgery, which this book has successfully achieved, and I discovered new information in every chapter [...] well set out with many astute observations [...] chapters are extremely useful for any veterinarian, as they vividly describe the basics of avian medicine and how to apply them [...] many practical tips and scenarios [...] [images] are of high quality and are well labelled [...] a comprehensive and up to date list of formulary, references and biological values, which provide a much needed quick reference [...] a necessary addition to all avian veterinary libraries [...] extremely useful for all veterinarians in developing a practical approach to common pet and aviary bird medical and surgical problems."
– A Rosenwax, Australian Veterinary Journal, 2011-06-15
